Engaging kids in the kitchen is always a great way to introduce them to new foods. It is also a great way to teach them that food can be fun. Homemade pigs in a blanket are one of my daughter’s meals to make together when we are in the mood for a relaxed, easy evening. I pop open the crescent rolls, get out her favorite mini organic chicken sausages and we spend a few minutes rolling them all together. They bake up quickly in the oven and dinner is served. There is nothing particularly fancy or unusual about them in the least, but they are still a blast to make and are fun to eat.
